http://stillrealtous.com/seth-rollins-on-going-from-internet-darling-to-getting-negative-reactions-from-fans/

Rollins has been on the receiving end of some negative backlash recently, and during an appearance on the new After The Bell podcast with Corey Graves, Rollins admitted that “it’s a weird industry” and he doesn’t, “know what wrestling looks like anymore.”

Corey Graves brought up how Seth Rollins used to be an “internet darling” and the Universal Champion went on to say that he’s not sure what changed in regards to how fans react to him.



“Well, you mentioned internet darling, the funny thing is, you could go all the way back, 6 months, you could go back a year ago from Hell In a Cell. I was everybody’s favorite. Those same people that are panning Hell In a Cell, and talking about how Seth Rollins is not cool, are those same people that were clamoring for me to be the guy to face Brock Lesnar going into WrestleMania. I don’t know what changed as far as the fact that, except for the fact that I became the person that they wanted me to be, and then they hated me for it. It’s a very fickle audience. It is what it is. To answer your question directly, it feels awful. You know, it’s not a good feeling to go out there and put your body on the line and not just at Hell In a Cell, but every single night, for the past how many ever years I’ve been doing it. I go out and compete at an extremely high level, and dare I say I’m one of the very best at my job, and I do what I have to do when I have to do it, and look, it’s not always pretty, but you go out there and you do your job, and you do it well, and people don’t like it, and they kind of forget that it is what it is. And so it hurts your feelings. You’re a human being. You go out there and you work hard, and it’s fine, it’s art, you can have your opinion on it, but man, it’s a tough pill to swallow sometimes.”

To be honest, I kinda roll my eyes at most wrestling fans aswell so I get where he's coming from.

Seth hasn't been cool since the original Shield run, he's never been cool on his own, his character has cool nicknames like architect, kingslayer and beastslayer but it's generic as fuck, this can't be a revelation to him, can it?

Say what you want about Cena and Reigns, but they werent as whiny as this guy is. Guys is getting butthurt over some boos and cheering the heel, he wouldnt survive what Cena and Reigns went through.

I know he was cool with Becky being alpha but I thought that was mostly Vince and they were just a normal couple where both do their thing. Now he is complaining about his feelings, this guy is really is a beta cuck.

The "Seth Rollins Is Not Cool" sign has truly worked him into a ferocious, fulminating, SEETHING shoot for over a month. What an emotional weakling.
Yeah it is truly incredible how worked up he got about it. You'd think a veteran of the industry like him would have developed a thicker skin.

Dudes solo character was basically a homeless mans version of Edge without Lita. He's a good wrestler but from a character standpoint, there was really never much cool about that lol
The irony of his relationship is that he's Lita and Becky is Edge. Ho tendencies and all.

Id say it started when he threw his friend Moxley under the bus then the steam pile of Twitter garbage and interview kept piling up. From Moxley to Will o and more. Just stop talking shit about other people focus on yourself and he'll be alright.

Be like Kayla Braxton on twitter. She comes up with the most random posts and no one is attacking her on there

This mother fucker is clueless.
Seth's been drinking the Vince McMahon Kool Aid. "I don't get why people hate me, they must just be fickle"

I feel like the fans started turning on him when he shit on Moxley for no reason. He said he "took his ball and went home" which is ridiculous because Moxley let his contract expire and then jumped to another company. Unless this is all an elaborate way to turn Rollins heel, he needs to shut up at this point.
